Suspect Device 2.0

A chaotic week at Dublin Airport -- a false claim by an apparently disturbed individual that he had a bomb, a strike, and now a controlled explosion on a suspicious package. Which turned out to be:

[a] bag [containing] a copy of the Koran and medicines.

An immediate question is whether any prior inspection of the bag had led to its contents being deemed more suspicious than usual.

UPDATE: The Koran being visible now indeed seems to have been the original source of the alert; perhaps an understandable leap, if only an awkward coincidence given the 7-7 anniversary.
